A master plan for Parker’s Main Street corridor is on the table. Currently organizers have a rough layout of the future placement of buildings, parking and focal point of the downtown area. The plan also explores the potential of public-private partnerships.
“It basically says, ‘here is where we are today and here is where we’d like to get to,” said town Councilmember Josh Martin, in the recent article. “What will the Mainstreet corridor look like when [Parker] has 90,000 citizens instead of 50,000?”
Council approved a budget appropriation in July that set aside $32,300 for the master planning process, according to the article. The town hired AECOM, an architecture, design and engineering firm, to draw up the plan.
According to the Parker Chronicle, implementation is optimistically planned for spring of 2015.
